Synopsis

This Neo-Latin lexicon (or dictionary) was edited by the late John Chadwick, the classical scholar who was and still is renowned throughout the world for his work in the decipherment of the ancient Minoan script Linear B. But he should also be remembered as the lexicographer who served for a number of years as an editor of the Oxford Latin Dictionary. Although this lexicon covers the works of a single author it is thought to be the first dictionary, as distinct from a word-list, of Neo-Latin words and their usages. The hope is that it will become an aid not only to Swedenborgian scholars and to Neo-Latinists, but also to theologians, philosophers, historians, and others who handle the texts and documents of those in recent centuries who wrote in Latin.

The current edition is co-edited by Dr Jonathan S Rose, renowned translator of Swedenborg and Editor of the New Century edition of Swedenborg's works published by the Swedenborg Foundation.
